How To Stop Sharing In Figma

If you are working with a small team of designers or sharing your project for review, Figma offers flexible sharing options. However, there may be situations where you no longer want others to have access to your file. This article will instruct you on how to successfully stop sharing your Figma files and projects.

Understanding Figma’s Sharing Permissions

Before diving into the steps on how to stop sharing, it’s essential to understand Figma’s sharing permissions. These permissions determine who can view, comment, or edit your Figma files and projects.

  • Can view: Users can only view the file or project but cannot make any changes.
  • Can comment: Users can view the file or project and leave comments, but they can’t make any changes to the designs.
  • Can edit: Users have full editing access to the file or project.

How to Stop Sharing a File or Project in Figma

Now, let’s move onto the steps to stop sharing a file or project in Figma:

1. Open the File or Project:

Open the file or project you want to stop sharing by navigating to the file’s location in your Figma dashboard.

2. Access Sharing Settings:

Once the file or project is open, click on the ‘Share’ button in the top-right corner of the screen. This will open a pop-up window with the current sharing settings.

3. Remove Access:

To stop sharing the file or project, you need to remove access for each individual user or email listed. To do this, hover over the user or email you want to remove and click on the ‘x’ that appears to the right of their name.

4. Confirm Removal:

A confirmation pop-up will appear asking if you are sure you want to remove access for this user. Click ‘Remove’ to confirm.

5. Repeat:

Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each user or email you want to remove from the file or project.

And there you have it! You have successfully stopped sharing your Figma file or project. Remember, you can always share your file or project again in the future should you need to collaborate or share your work for review.
